Kampala: The bodies of the two foreign tourists who were killed in Queen Elizabeth National Park are still being kept in the mortuary at Mulago National Referral Hospital awaiting the arrival of Forensic experts from the UK and South Africa.

According to Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, the teams will in coordination with investigative and scientific experts review the circumstances of the violent attack and murder, the evaluation of the evidence, and forensic analysis of the collected samples.

The two foreign tourists were killed on their honey moon alongside a Ugandan guide/driver last week and the car they were travelling in was set a blaze, an incident that has left Uganda’s tourism industry in panic mode.

While as the body of the Ugandan guide/driver, Eric Alyai, was handed over to the relatives, after a post –mortem examination, Enanga noted that ”an official report of death of the victims will be handed over after wards.

”As the Joint Security Agencies, we remain extremely saddened that this very tragic incident happened in our country that attracts thousands of tourists both foreign and domestic. It is highly regrettable. We do extend our condolences to the families and loved ones of, the British citizen, the South African and Alyai Eric. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of them. We further extend heartfelt condolences to the British High Commission and the South African Commission in Uganda for the loss of its citizens” Enanga said in a statement.

”Like indicated by H.E. The President, the UPDF Mountain Brigade and UWA, continue to aggressively pursue the terrorists who fled, in the area left of Bweera-Kikoroongo road. We are sure that all those responsible for the horrific and violent attack, will be held accountable for their criminal actions” he added.

Enanga has further reassured all Ugandans and visitors that the safety of tourists continues to be their priority.

”We have as a result adjusted and stepped up, our patrols along the major roads and highways in Kasese district, with the deployment of an integrated highway patrol unit, together with other road policing measures in the neighboring areas. We have also adjusted deployments at all tourists sites. These and other security measures are aimed at guaranteeing, peace, safety and security in the country” Enanga noted.

According to President Museveni and UPDF spokesperson Brig Gen Felix Kulayigye confirmed that Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) were behind the killing and further described the incident as being unfortunate and infuriating.

“A couple of tourists and the Ugandan driver with them were killed at around 1800hrs on the Katwe- Kabatooro murram road, by a small group of terrorists running away from our operations in Congo, as I had shared with you in a previous message. It was a cowardly act on the part of the terrorists attacking innocent civilians and tragic for the couple who were newlyweds and visiting Uganda on their honeymoon. Of course, these terrorists will pay with their own wretched lives,” Museveni said in a statement. an accessible web community
